Black Friday : The True Story of the Bombay Bomb Blasts (Paperback) Price: Rs.219

The first compelling account of the biggest terrorist attack on an Indian city.

On the afternoon of 12 March 1993, a series of explosions cut a swathe through Bombay, spreading terror and destruction over a period of two hours. Starting from the landmark Bombay Stock Exchange in the south of the city during the crowded lunch hour, the blasts extended all the way across to Centaur Hotel, Juhu, in the north. The toll: 257 killed or missing, 713 injured, and a city in shambles.

In Black Friday, S. Hussain Zaidi takes us into the heart of the conspiracy and the massive investigation that ensued. The product of four years of meticulous research, the book gives chilling insights into the criminal mind as revealed in Zaidi' s interviews with the close associates of some of India's most notorious namesDawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon, among others and reveals the true dimensions of the macabre plan that spanned several countries and had been months in the making.

The characters we meet are compelling: the terrorists, the corrupt law enforcement agents who abetted the plot, the investigators who would stop at nothing, and above all, the people of Bombay of whose resilient spirit this book is a celebration. Today, as terrorist attacks on Indian cities become more frequent, this heroism is something we might all be called upon to emulate

Great Work

Dear friends, I saw the book and read the reviews given by other friends. A bit of eagerness raised in me to know about the actual things happened on Friday the 12th March 1993 in Bombay. All of us might have read articles in newspapers and leading magazines. But this book I tell you will give a better hands on information when compared to those newspapers and magazines. Mr. S. Hussain Zaidi, did a great work to bring in light the untold truth. The initial pages of the book details about the bomb blast and the disaster and panic it created among the people. The next few chapters gives in detail about the way the attack was planned, the way they trained the people in Pakistan to make the attack in Bombay and the people responsible for the blast. The remaining section details about the police investigations and their spectacular achievement of getting the lead in 48 hours, a great speed when compared to any of the police force around the world. The book is not a fiction, but it has got the momentum and speed. The book is full of facts and evidences from various sources and ultimately it makes an interesting read and worth spending.

Adventure and mystery run through my veins

As I have finished watching the movie, Black Friday, I was tremendously shaken and moved, and wanted to dig up or investigate more about the untold truth. I came across the book by Zaidi. It unfolds a lot more details which are missing from the movie. Though the movie was made quite well in a manner, but the missing links could be woven up, if one reads the book. It is so engrossing that one cannot just get rid of it, without finishing at a go. Revelation of the facts in a very lucid way, makes it more attractive. But, sadly, it reveals the poor administration of Indian government (some officers, who were bribed) and also the power of Indian police force and some loyal and honest officers. Wonderfully written, revealing all minute details of everyone's thoughts, action...I could see, everything in front of my eyes...reading the book.

Excellent Read!

By far, this book will always remain as the most comprehensive research piece on 1993 Bombay blasts. No other piece of literatre can offer you so many details in such a consice form. Starting from demolition of Babri Masjid, Zaidi takes you back in time to explain how the meticulous planning started and how the plan culminated into satanic actions. With his usual rhetoric, which is simple yet captivating at all times, the author leaves no stones unturned in giving a detailed description of all the events leading up to the blasts and the events thereof.

A must read for people who are interested in knowing more about the Mumbai Mafiosi. Thanks Flipkart for making this classical piece available.

Thrilling account of Black Friday

I came to know about this book after watching movie with the same name. I bought this since I liked the movie and wanted to know more on this subject. As expected book has provided more insight on Bombay blasts from all possible angles. As you read the book, author takes you on thrilling journey from Bombay to Dubai to Islamabad and provides clear picture of what all happened. Hussain Zaidi has done immense research on this subject which evident when you read the book.

Over all this a must read book if want to know more about The Black Friday of India.

Chilling facts!!

Initially starts with the facts of Babri masjid demolition incident. Talks about memmon's vendetta and how he used men to avenge his loss during the Bombay riots. ACP Maria's character is nicely put. Though in the movie many things are missing, like how bollywood was connected to the D company and the involvement of Sanjay Dutt in the mess. Too many characters but by the end you will never forget the Memmon family, D company associates and the Badshah Khan :) A good read :)
